Idea Playground Hihi! My name is Brian Smith, and I am a conceptual artist and business strategist. Idea Playground is a free space for concepts to play together. I believe that people with wide perspectives are more adept at problem solving, more empathetic, more tolerant, more willing to listen, and more willing to collaborate. The more we share, the stronger we become as a culture of humans. I started Idea Playground to foster thinking, complexity, and the intersection of ideas. My fascinations have led me to friendships with remarkable people on six continents. If you love learning, this is your place.
